    People see me as a lazy,

    uninteresting and unsociable person because I always drag myself during the day, but when the night comes I simply come to life. Idk how to explain it but I suddenly want to do stuff and I have these vivid ideas and thoughts about everything.

    It's 02:43 in the morning here in England

    and I cannot sleep. I am awake most mornings at this time as I grow older I seem to need less sleep. So if anyone else is awake and wants to talk just message me :)

    You are most vulnerable at night in the dark,

    as you slumber be wary of those who wish to exploit your vulnerability for their own selfish pleasures, as well as your own.

    The night is so beautiful,

    the stars,the moon,the quiet breeze. I am so much more comfortable at night than during the day.I feel like i can breathe,for the first time in a long time i can take a deep breath and instantly feel better. The darkness of it is so amazing,the only natural light is from the moon...

    I love staying up. Haha.

    I guess I always preferred the night than day! I just loving hearing chill music, while just staring at the ceiling.

    Any tips on how to go to sleep a healthy,

    early time? For the majority of the time I want to be able to sleep the required amount and feel good the next day. Been sleeping too late for years now, I'm so used to this habit

    Although I've always had issues sleeping,

    I'm a big fan of night time. Not the clubs and night life but feeling the cool air caress me and marvelling at the stars. Sometimes I wish my boyfriend would come with me on night drives to the beach..

    During the day I feel like a sloth,

    like I just can't wait to go back to sleep, but as soon as it gets dark out I get a burst of energy. During the day, it's good if I take less than 20 minutes to get up and go anywhere. At night, it's like I want to climb a mountain and write a novel and learn a new language and...

    I can stay up all night!

    My problem is that I think too much. It is hard to get my mind to settle down. I can just stay up all night talking. I love deep, in depth, intellectual conversations. I love watching movies. Even if I've never heard of them. I usually just end up passing out because I...

    The owl perches once again. It would not be a big deal if the owl didn't have class in the morning. The owl lays in a nest of strategically arranged blankets that sit precisely to her liking. She types away at her dying laptop Is it worth it to get up and get the charger...

    "The night is for passion.

    It’s for fanaticism, romance and trouble. It’s when your most tender, authentic and suppressed sides come out to play under the nonjudgmental eyes of the stars."
